If you create a new folder on your pc's desktop and name it as "con"........well it will never happen. Just try doing it, i bet you wont be able to create folder on your desktop with the name "con".

Woah. Also: if you go into command prompt and type is the word "con" and then press enter, it will tell you that what you have typed is incorrect but it will put spaces in quotations, as though it really doesn't want you to see that word. My guess is that it is a reserved word for a function in windows...like CONsole...

Good you are actually going into the right direction but "CONSOLE" is not the right answer....thanks for your response.
